Ghost Draftsperson Riders in the Sky

From Draftsperson.net

You've heard about the ghost riders in the sky. Here's another scary story.

An old draftsman came ridin in one dark and windy day

Tore off four strips of drafting tape to make his velum stay

Snatched up his trusty pencil, and made his pointer spin

Stabbed a block of styrofoam to clean the sharp black end

He soon whipped out a floor plan, scaled and straight and true

Then he cut a section before the clock struck 2:00

He was brushing off his drawing and loading up fresh lead

When some noise and commotion made him turn his head

All at once a mighty herd of red eyed geeks he saw

Charging in his cubicle, right where he had to draw

Their hair was black and shiny and their nerves were made of steel

They had a big huge box with them, set it down and broke the seal

A bolt of fear went through him as they piled stuff on his desk

A gnarly nest of cables and a television set

He wanted to watch Gunsmoke, so he tried to tune it in

This aint no tv, dummy. Where the hell you been?

This here is Automatic Cadd. Aint you heard of it before?

Well sure, but I got a Chevy with a four speed on the floor

Just sit down in this chair right here and bang upon these keys

This thing will draw your drawings all with speed and ease

Pitch that old board in the dumpster, or drag it down the hall

Get rid of that old Mayline, it aint no good at all

They punched the power button and the thing began to whir

The TV screen lighted up, his eyes began to blur

He sat and poked the keyboard till his back began to ache

His legs went numb, it hurt his head, he had to take a break

All that intel inside of there made him cuss and frown

That click and search and opening windows kind of slowed him down

His face is gaunt, his eyes are crossed, his shirt’s all soaked with sweat

He’s tryin hard to draw some stuff, but he aint caught on yet

As they dragged their empty box away he heard one call his name

If you want to draw a paycheck you’ll learn this video game

Draftsman, change your ways today or with us you won’t ride

From this devil’s instrument you can’t run or hide

Don’t stand up or look around Stay right there in that seat

Drag them drawings out of there and get em on the street

Yippee I aye Yippee I oh

Old draftsman, how were you to know?
